Effective January of 2010 CenCal was no longer paying any benefits for eye exams or eyewear.
The exceptions were patients with a current CenCal patient and
- 20 years of age and under or
- were in an assisted living facility
Good news!!! CenCal has re-instated eye exams for all CenCal eligible members. Unfortunately this benefit does not extend to eyewear. Michael’s Optical still has a program for eligible CenCal members. Just show your CenCal card and you are eligible for one of our CenCal packages. This is not the entirely covered benefit that you are used to but it is a heavily discounted program designed just for those people who have lost their insurance coverage. So go ahead and make an appointment with your usual CenCal eye doctor and then bring your prescription to Michael’s Optical.
